The long range goal of Recovery For Life is for you to bring your hurts, habits, and hang-ups to Christ and seek His healing through a recovery process known as the Twelve Steps. As you work through the steps and submit to Him, healing comes and with it His peace (Phil.4:7). This is not an event but a process.
Finally, Step 12 (Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we try to carry this message to others…) calls us to service. It is our hope that you will join us in helping others through Recovery For Life. Because of the pain you have had from your hurts, habits and hang-ups, you are uniquely equipped to minister to others who are facing similar struggles (see 2 Corinthians 1:3-7). There is no greater privilege than walking with others and seeing the changes in their lives.
God Has a Sense of Humor
Isn’t it awesome that God would use 2 drunks, Bill W. and Dr. Bob, to create The Twelve Steps and AA? AA is a picture of Acts 2 in action. The Twelve Steps are a biblical road map of how to live your life.
The Difference Between AA and Recovery For Life
The principle difference between AA (and other 12 Step programs) and Recovery For Life is that Recovery For Life focuses on Jesus Christ as the true Higher Power and uses God’s word as the authority in relation to the 12 Steps. In addition, the 8 Principles to the Road to Recovery tie the 12 Steps to Jesus Christ’s teachings known as the Beatitudes given in The Sermon on the Mount.
